There are still some big bargains out there and this 1978 Corvette definitely qualifies. It's a fast, fun, affordable driver-grade 'Vette with an awesome look that will work for some and not for others, and that's OK. We only need one guy to really love it and once you drive it, it becomes pretty hard to resist.
The '78 Corvettes are most often pace cars or anniversary models, so seeing a black '78 Corvette is actually a pretty rare thing. The paint has a decent shine that buffs up well and there's no avoiding the bright green stripe down the center. That stripe seems to conjure an OEM look and follows the shape of the hood scoop, so it actually works rather well on the C3 bodywork. There are a few signs of age here and there, but nothing that's going to need attention anytime soon and you'll quickly discover that showing up in a Corvette is still a pretty big deal. It doesn't appear that this car has ever been wrecked because the doors fit well, the hood sits flush, and even the headlight doors fit correctly. Out back, the urethane end cap is still in great shape, offering original taillights and a 'corvette' emblem in the center, just in case nobody recognized it.
Now before you make any hasty judgments, just take a look at the totally custom interior. The bright green accents admittedly aren't for everyone, but in this car, they really seem to work. Custom leather seat upholstery, modified door panels, and a bright green center console all liven up the formerly all black interior and the look is perfect for the '70s supercar. Other good stuff is all OEM Corvette, ranging from the leather-wrapped steering wheel to the supportive seats, to options like power windows, power locks, and a tilt/telescope steering column. An upgraded Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo with a custom speaker enclosure and amplifiers in the rear cargo area sounds spectacular and looks pretty cool, too. Pull the T-tops off, turn on your favorite sounds, and you'll find that this cool vintage 'Vette still delivers first-class fun.
The 350 cubic inch V8 was pulled from a '73 or '74 Chevy and rebuilt for use in a Corvette. That means more power was required, so there's a very healthy camshaft in the center of the block and an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor up top, not to mention things like long-tube headers and those blue finned valve covers. It's not really detailed for show, but the way it runs will make you forget all about sitting still at a car show and the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission snaps off shifts so quickly that you'll never wish for a clutch again. The exhaust sounds great thanks to true dual pipes with Flowmaster mufflers and chrome tips, and the largely original chassis shows off decades of clean living someplace where snow doesn't rot the cars. Extra wide Centerline aluminum wheels are fitted at all four corners and give the Corvette a slightly custom stance, and they're wrapped in 255/60/15 front and 195/50/15 rear performance radials.
Affordable cars are still out there and this Corvette offers a great deal of performance for the money, and if you like the look, you're going to love how it drives. Call today!
